BOX13 Artspace resident artist Jessica Kreutter is showing an installation at Art League Houston. The piece, Small Cities on Stars, will be exhibited in the Art League Hallway, with an artist talk starting at 6:15 p.m. on the evening of the 22nd. Jessica Kreutter provided an explanation of the piece below:
“This is a piece about the place of imagination occupying the chasm between our minds on earth and the stars” says the artist. “Looking up into the night sky, I experience both a connection and separation from something so vast, distant and seemingly timeless. Space is a concept so unfathomable that imagination often fills in the gaps. We form pictures to connect the stars, we send out wishes and wonder at the possibilities. I seek comfort in this unknown”.
“This is a passage way where to find our way, we look up. Suspended overtop is a netted ceiling of weightless volume. It has structure, yet holds no mass and remains empty. It may catch or protect against something. Colonies of white droplets hang like suspended rain or the constellations above and tall white towers grow in corners. This is a place we must travel through. A place that exists to connect other places”.
The exhibition will run from January 22, 2016 to February 27, 2016 at Art League Houston.
